Copyright - Engine of Development 

This work, the first digital publication proposed by UNESCO Publishing, highlights the economic benefits that flow to developing countries from strong copyright protection. 


It documents the cultural benefits that spring from the elimination of copyright piracy.

Most important, though, it attemps to give the reader the arguments needed to answer the hard question posed at the outset, be they from a government minister, a law-school student, or one's own children: why copyright?
